Historic Banhgarh damaged by the encroachers

The historic Bahgarh which was built in 1538 A.D. by Ahom Kings to protect their capital Gargaon covers a large area of Hahchara, Bokota, Betbari, Mechagarh, Chakimukh, Simaluguri, Lakuwa etc. of Sivasagar district. Due to the lack of proper protection by the central & state authorities, some people are trying to illegally occupy the historic land of Bahgarh and thus destroy this historic monument. The Govt. should take appropriate measures to preserve this monuments.
